Unusual sighting (delayed from March 2022)

Spiny lobster lifted out of a crab net at Pillar Point Harbor Pier (Half Moon Bay), mid May 2022. Some on the pier joked that it was an lucky escapee from Barbara's.

It does raise concerns about global warming, HMB in March ought to be too cold for these guys???

Hard to say. We've had several reported from SF Bay over the years. In some cases it was lobsters released from captivity by Buddhists.
